Now, in general sense, a concrete pavement can be set in two ways, firstly in cement and secondly in sand and pebbles. In this article, we will see some of the benefits that one will get, when they install concrete paver in their driveway or patios.
Versatility-: Concrete pavers is the best material to be installed in an outdoor space and there are good reasons for it. It comes in with the modern interlocking technology, where, each of the concrete blocks just interlocks against each other, hence, enhancing the durability of the outdoor space. In fact, it has been proved that even if a 200-ton thing is rolled over a concrete paver, still it won’t get disoriented.
Moreover, concrete pavers have been designed in such a way, that it will not skid when wet, therefore making it safe for people who will walk on it, in rainy season.
Cost-: Concrete pavers cost less than other materials that can be installed in an outdoor space, and is also durable. It has been statistically proven that, it stays for over 25 years once installed properly, and even if there is a damage, it is very easy to repair since, it is installed in blocks, and if one of the block is damaged, only that block needs to be changed. While, on the other hand, if it was a plain cement or pitch pavement, then the entire pitch would have to be replaced.
Cost of Maintenance-: As we discussed above, concrete pavers are very durable, and hence, do not get damaged before 25 plus years of usage. Hence, the cost of maintenance tends to be zero. Even if one of the interlocked block comes up or gets damaged, it can be fixed very easily by buying another block, and then installing in place of the damaged block. In terms of cleaning the concrete pavers, one needs to just sweep it sometimes, and water it using a hose pipe. If there are stains on the interlocked blocks, then cleaning it with water and a rough brush would do. Sometimes, weed grows in between the interlocked blocks, and it is very easy to remove them. You can just pluck them off, or you can remove the interlocked block, and then remove the weed from the root, and then press the interlocked block again in its place.
Variety of Colors and Shapes-: Concrete Pavers comes in a lot of varieties in terms of colors and shapes, which makes every block unique. It can also be modified and can be made more stylish and attractive.
Favorable to All Weathers-: Pitch tends to contract or expand during different seasons, thereby making it crack after enduring a few seasons. There is no such case when it comes to concrete pavers. It won’t crack or warp, after enduring a few seasons, but it will go on and on.
